We’re proud to announce that SecurityScorecard has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2023.
This list highlights companies at the forefront of their respective industries, who are rethinking business and culture, while paving the way for future innovations. We’re honored to join the ranks of other innovators, such as OpenAI, Disney, and Tiffany & Co.
Innovations we admire
Having identified and discovered how to meet a vital need to measure and provide KPIs for cybersecurity by creating the cybersecurity ratings space, we recognize that innovation is everywhere–regardless of industry, sector, region, or country. With that in mind, the leaders at SecurityScorecard share the innovations that have inspired them:
The Apgar Score
Created by Dr. Virginia Apgar in 1952, the Apgar Score revolutionized the way newborn infants are cared for and evaluated. Ranging from 0-10–with a score of 7, 8, or 9 in the normal range–this system has been routinely used worldwide. By providing a standardized assessment for infants immediately after delivery, the Apgar Score has helped healthcare providers, especially in the field of neonatology, provide more effective treatments and interventions for newborns.
“This system was actually a bit of an inspiration for SecurityScorecard.”
-Dr. Aleksandr Yampolskiy, CEO and Co-Founder, SecurityScorecard
Launched in November, 2022 by OpenAI, ChatGPT is the fastest growing consumer app of all time. This innovative AI language model is trained on vast amounts of information, including books, articles, and websites, and uses deep learning to generate human-like text. ChatGPT is being used to answer questions, help users code, and even compose essays.
“I admire ChatGPT, which has the potential to be the 2023 version of Siri – easy to use, stunning accuracy, and practical applications.”
-Sachin Bansal, Chief Business Officer, SecurityScorecard
From nutrition and fitness counseling as well as blood sugar tracking, the use of health apps has skyrocketed in recent years. They are relatively easy to use, with us most of the time, and often come with a built-in community of users. These apps have changed the way we care for ourselves.
“They allow people to improve and measure their personal health without a doctor.”
–Robert Gibney, Chief Financial Officer, SecurityScorecard
First used in the 1980s, DNA fingerprinting has forever changed the fields of medicine, forensic science, criminal justice, and genealogy. This still-evolving and innovative technology has a wide variety of applications.
“DNA fingerprinting can be used to track down lost relatives, discover cures for disease, and be presented as evidence in courts of law.”
-Jeff Alvarez, Chief People Officer, SecurityScorecard
Building trust through innovation
Though these innovations occurred in disparate fields, what they have in common is their ability to fundamentally change society. At SecurityScorecard, we are constantly searching for ways to make the world a safer place. As part of that mission, we released a report at this year’s World Economic Forum, detailing the state of critical infrastructure and ways to improve cyber resiliency.
SecurityScorecard’s cybersecurity ratings are becoming a trusted barometer of cyber resilience. They serve as a standard unit of measurement to help organizations identify their vulnerabilities and make informed decisions to strengthen their cyber defenses. Whether it’s working with our partners in the public sector to assess the health of their cybersecurity environments, assisting companies as they audit their third-party vendors, or responding to cyber incidents, we are always seeking to evolve, innovate, and change the way the world measures trust.
